Obama has nominated Berkeley Law School professor Goodwin Liu to the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. NRO's Bench Memos has important and illuminating background information about Liu, an intellectually underwhelming Left-wing hack, here, here and here.
Although it's probably expecting too much, my hope is that Senate Republicans come together and filibuster this joker, much as the Dems filibustered Miguel Estrada into abandoning his nomination by Bush to the DC Court of Appeals. Of course, unlike Estrada, filibustering Liu here would be justified given Liu's stated judicial philosophy and less than impressive credentials in the legal profession.
Update: Ed Whelan at Bench Memos easily smacks down a couple of Kool-Aid drinking pro-Liu bloggers.
